It's been a long time since we visited this establishment for food, but it was well worth the wait. A charming restaurant, with a lovely ambience, very popular with tourists due to its age. Our food was amazing, very fresh and tasty, beautifully presented. The staff were very friendly, and quietly observed the diners without being intrusive. Dogs welcome too....

Arrived on Friday afternoon, The Crown was ideally situated in the market place. Had a drink and lunch in the bar as we had arrived early and our room wasn't quite ready. Obviously a popular bar, but we were served quickly and food good. Our room was big and comfy, very clean with all the usual amenities. We ate in...

High praise for this Hotel, Staff very welcoming, accomodation lovely and meal at the Bistro excellent. Right in the centre of the City with free parking, a couple of minutes from the Cathedral and Bishops Palace (well worth a visit). Four- Poster bedroom very comfortable with tea/coffee making facility and good sized shower/toilet.Highly recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights at Swan Hotel and called into the Crown Pub for a drink and looked at food and ended up staying all night. On a Friday 5 to 6 is Happy Hour and free nibbles and very cheap beer watching Rugby could not fault Ploughmans and Ham egg and chips very good for price

My wife and I visited Antons as an afterthought when we couldn't get a table at a new place, we were greeted with friendly staff, good service and a good choice of menu to which we both enjoyed very much. Great food perfectly cooked, hats off to the chef and staff and will be calling in again.

Beautiful building, staff welcoming and hospitable, meal was excellent and well worth the cost, pet friendly, and if you book to stay in their hotel, pets are allowed also.The hotel is right next to Wells cathedral, this town is lovely with some modern shops, but at the same time quaint.

I'm not sure what to say about The Crown. We arrived at about. 6:30 on a Friday night. The hotel is a nice looking historic building right on the main square of this lovely City so excellent location. We could see that the bar was packed with customers and we received a warm and friendly welcome from the bloke on...

Your review is terrifically long, I will keep my response short. You didn't mention the bed being uncomfortable. The shower did work. It was checked both by housekeeping and our maintenance chap. You were offered another room on the basis you were not happy with the one you were in, no other reason. You say you were "a bit grumpy"....

Went to the Bistro for lunch with my daughters.There was only one other table occupied when we arrived. The waitress took our drinks order which came quite quickly. We ordered our food and by this time all the tables were taken. We sat there fore about twenty minutes and all the other tables food arrived apart from ours. The food...

Thank you for your comments concerning lunch in Anton's at the weekend. Your food order took longer than other tables as your order included a burger which takes longer to prepare than sandwiches and salads. Our waitress was being trained on what was a terrifically busy service. You don't mention you being rude. It's just not necessary nor justifiable. We're...

We came here for tea. Excellent service with excellent burgers, which tasted like those you would be supplied with by the butcher. Prices were not over the top either, in a very pleasant and friendly setting, providing a range of draught ales from Cornwall (Tribute, Doom Bar, Wolf Rock) and Somerset (Butcombe Bitter).
